Leonard Library Paintings

Gouache on Aquabord wooden panel. Each panel is 42 x 54 inches.

Leonard Library is a branch of the Brooklyn Public Library in East Williamsburg. The library commissioned me to paint scenes from the American classic novel, “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn” which is set in the immediate neighborhood of this library in the early 1910s.
